How important are sun protection and professional sunscreen products? Check out these skin cancer statistics:
- Skin cancer accounts for more diagnoses in the U.S. each year than all other cancers combined
- 20% of Americans will have skin cancer by the time they’re 80 years old
- Melanoma diagnoses are increasing, and the vast majority of cases can be linked to sun exposure
Here’s how you can protect yourself by using high-quality products with incredible ingredients and proven results:
SkinMedica® Total Defense + Repair SPF 50
The first line of defense against sun-damaged skin is wearing a product with adequate protection. SkinMedica ups the ante with its Total Defense + Repair SPF 50, a dynamic sunscreen that combines ample UV protection with an advanced antioxidant complex that repairs and rejuvenates your skin. Perhaps most exciting is the non-greasy, easy-absorbing nature of the cream — finally, an SPF product that works well, water resistant and feels great.
Revision® Skincare Intellishade® SPF 45 Tinted Moisturizer
When you want to look put-together on the go without sacrificing sun protection, reach for Revision® Skincare Intellishade® SPF 45. This multitasker is part cosmetic, part broad-spectrum sunscreen; enjoy a subtle, radiant glow while resting secure in the knowledge that there’s a trustworthy barrier between your dewy, beautifully moisturized skin and harsh UVA and UVB rays. And did we mention that it has antiaging peptides and antioxidant benefits?
Intellishade comes in your choice of Original or Matte, and is one shade fits all so you can choose the finish that best matches your aesthetic.
Xen-Tan® Premium Sunless Tan
One easy way to regulate your sun exposure is to skip the natural tan altogether and opt for a bottled summer glow. Forget that telltale orangey mess you get from drugstore brands; Xen-Tan delivers a realistic look thanks to a true olive undertone that makes even fair skin look radiant. The product goes on sheer and develops over time, with ingredients such as shea butter, vitamin E, and green tea to soothe and moisturize skin along the way.
